EXCELLENT UNIT FOR THE PRICE, BUT YOU'LL NEED TO ORDER A NECESSARY PART
24 November 2014
Summary: We absolutely LOVE this processor (its heavy-duty, well-made, etc.), but its got a relatively rare and dedicated "Dough" button, yet it doesn't ship with an all-plastic dough blade?!@#$%&? Why? That makes no sense. We had to contact Cuininart directly and get them to ship us the part separately, which should NOT have been necessary.
Summary: LOVE THIS THING! My household is very produce heavy! We go through fruits, veggies, and beans like crazy. I usually have an entire day set aside just to prep all the veggies for the week. I get blisters on my knife hand! I have had processors before, but they never really performed as well I needed them to based on the mess and space they use. I have a small kitchen, getting counter space means you work and the chef loves you!
Summary: I'd been using a GE food processor that was gift back in the mid-1970s. When it started making strange noises I began thinking about a replacement. Did lots of review reading and kept coming back to the Cuisinart brand. Then I had to decide what size would be best for my needs. Settled on this Cuisinart DLC-2011CHB 11-cup model. Wish I had made the move sooner! It's amazingly fast, easy to use, and easy to clean. Haven't used the "dough blade" yet, but plan to soon.
Summary: Previously I had other brands of food processors, parts of which broke fairly early on and did not do a great job. So I decided to invest in a Cuisinart this time. I have not been disappointed. I keep this on the counter because I use it several times a week for chopping, grating, slicing and mixing. This food processor and my Vitamix are among my favorite tools and make food prep, cooking and baking a breeze.
Summary: As a technologically challenged person (meaning I don't read the directions carefully enough) I Almost broke this the first time I used it. Luckily a friend was with me and saw that I had the cover on backwards. Yes, I did watch the video, but it really didn't get into the stupid details that I need to have. Enough about me, the processor works great. I tried making fake soft serve ice cream, using only fruit. You don't have to buy that $50 device.
Summary: The food processor works pretty well. My main 'complaint' would be that it doesn't come with many attachments; and when you add them together, they are pretty expensive. Had it less than 6 months and the bowl broke at one of the attach points so I had to get a new one.
Summary: I really liked the product but the motor stopped working after just 3 months . It's costing me $40 to transport to Cuisinart and back for repairs and expected to take two months. Doesn't seem reasonable for such a recent purchase.
Summary: This was the first cuisinart I bought since 1993 ish. Wow, what great improvements they have made to their design in the past 20 years. I really appreciate the movement of the bowl onto the base and the three point locking system instead of two. Also, I have noticed it is easier to use the feeding tube for larger items now. I am so happy my first machine finally died, so I can now enjoy this one! Super happy with it!
Summary: There are certain brands you can't go wrong with, and in my experience Cuisinart is one of them. This food processor is perfect for my uses. It's just the right size and does a perfect job of pureeing, grinding, slicing, and shredding. It's easy to use and cleans up easily. You can put the blades in the dishwasher, which I would recommend because they are sharp as a razer blade and I sliced my thumb when I attempted to hand wash. Lesson learned: NEVER touch the blade.
Summary: Can't think of one negative thing to say about this food processor. It does exactly what it's supposed to do. Watched the video, set up the processor and started chopping, slicing and grating! Haven't used the dough blade yet. Only thing that wasn't in video or instructions is that there is only one way to put the bowl on. If the handle isn't facing the right way there is no power connection. Once figured out, it's a piece of cake...
